The Men’s White Rose (Under 25 County Double Rinks) played in the regional finals today at Dunnington BC, York. After overcoming Lincolnshire in the 1st round played 2 weeks ago, we faced Lancashire in the morning.

And the great news is we won 45 – 27 (Northumberland names first).

Despite this loss all of the lads have been fantastic today, and in the previous game also. This defeat in a regional final of course is disappointing but we are making progress and development of these players. Our future in the county is certainly bright and we need to ensure these youngsters are given as many opportunities as possible.

John would like to thank the lads for their commitment, play and efforts, to the parents for your continued support, and help and to Acting TM today Stephen Harvey – many thanks Steve.

Our best wishes go to Bowls Nottinghamshire on their success today – may be we will get revenge in the quarters in the Middleton Cup (perhaps).
